I found this back in the spring posted on a Rootsweb message board. Thought it might be of interest here...

Kunselman origin

In Reply to: Kunselman family name by: Bill Hutton

There is an article in The Pennslyvania Genealogical Magazine, Volume XXXVI--Number 2, 1989 written by Annette Kunselman Burgert about the origins of the first Kunselman who came to America. She states that a chance discovery by well known German geneaologist, Carla Mittelstaedt-Kubaseck, located a marriage record in a Lutheran Church book at Wendelsheim, in Rheinland-Pfalz for the immigrent Bartholomai Kuntzelnann, the first Kunselman immigrant to America (arrived in 1741). The name and its variations traces back to German and Swiss origin. Her article traces four generations in America. You might get a copy from the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania, 1300 Locust Street, Philadelphia 19107 or from Annette Kunselman Burgert at 691 Weavertown Rd., Myerstown, Pa.17067. She had a few left when I ordered mine last month. Good luck.
